Maltings, now workshop. 1899-1902 by Herbert Couchman. Red brick; Welsh slate roof.
Maltings are a long 10-window range of 2 storeys with 3-span roof; kilns at right angles
to left; accumulator tower to right.
Maltings: Round-headed cast iron windows with radiating glazing bars on ground floor;
pivoted windows with cambered heads on first floor. Kilns:Ramp up to square-headed
door on right. 2 windows. Corner buttresses. C20 addition in centre. 2-span hipped
roof with ridge ventilators. Left return has three windows and 10 buttresses.
Tower: Rectangular plan; one recessed panel to front, 2 to sides. Tall round-headed
window with round opening above. Parapet with brick coping raised at corners. Right
return elevation of maltings has 3 gables. Scattered fenestration. 2 tall round-headed
windows to left of C20 sliding doors; another square-headed opening with C20 roller
shutter to right, flanked by round-headed windows. Weatherboarded hoist in valley to
right of tower has one window in gabled front and 2 to side. Central gable of the
maltings has round window. Another hoist on first floor of right gable has gabled
canopy on cast iron brackets over segmental headed boarded door, flanked by windows with
segmental heads. Platform on cast iron brackets has lattice balustrade. Interior of
kilns retains perforated floor. These maltings are notable as an example of the
structure built to house box drums which turned the grain as it germinated. Although
the equipment has been removed, the pattern of fenestration reflects the former use of
the building with many more windows on the northern side, since ventilation as required
for the traditional type of malting floor was not necessary.
